2017 End of the Year Campaign

The Zen Community of Oregon is continuing to expand its offerings, growing new teachers, Sangha leaders, monastic residents, lay practitioners and a socially engaged Sangha.

The Zen Community of Oregon continues to open its doors to all those with a sincere wish to practice.

Please help us care for and maintain our vital places of practice - Heart of Wisdom our urban sanctuary in North Portland and Great Vow Monastery our residential and retreat practice community nestled quietly within a forest refuge.

It is our intention to continue to provide on-going opportunities to deepen and expand our understanding, wisdom and compassion, to practice together and to bring the fruits of this practice out into our lives and the world.

PLEASE HELP US CONTINUE OUR OFFERINGS BY MAKING A DONATION 

In 2018, we will focus our efforts on rennovating our teachers' quarters for our current and future teachers and leaders at the monastery. We estimate it will cost $40,000 for this project.

2017 Fundriasing Successes

ZCO is a vital alive community which supports clarity of mind and openness of heart. We endeavor to make our facilities accessible and supportive of sustained practice by anyone.

Thank you to all those who donated to our Housing and Accessibility Campaigns at Great Vow and Heart of Wisdom. Both Campaigns were a success!

Heart of Wisdom Accessibility Campaign allowed us to install a stairlift at the Temple, as well as better sound & amplification equipment specifically for those with impaired hearing.

The Housing Campaign at the Monastery, opened the retreat hut back up for public use, hosting a number of Sangha members in personal retreats. 

We also completed the construction project of two apartments for our two ordained couples. 

 

Thank you for everyone who donated, money, construction material, skills and time to these projects, the numbers of hands and hearts that have dedicated their life energy for the benefit of the Sangha community is too great to even begin to count. Thank you for your continued generosity as we build and sustain our places of practice together.
